Spring 2015 Shoe Trends Part 3: Kitten Heels & Wedges

For the final day of our spring shoe trends week, I have not one, but two trends to talk about with you.  Even though these trends couldn’t be more night and day, they both are examples of how heels are changing this spring.  The first is the highly controversial kitten heel.  For those who want to add a little lift to your flats, you’ll be happy to know that they are back in-style.  People either love kitten heels or really hate them.  Fans of high heels think that they are pointless, whereas others like/love them because they are easier to move around in.   Speaking as a high heel girl, I really like kitten heels.   They turn an ordinary flat into a sexier style, and I can run around the city for hours wearing them.  Pair your kitten heels with skinny jeans, a midi skirt, or a flowy dress.  When you live in a city, your flats don’t last longer than a season, whereas kitten heels do.  Come on, give them a try!  They aren’t as bad as you think!

The second and final trend is the wedge.  Like kitten heels, wedges are changing how heeled shoes are being designed.  The days of narrow high heels are becoming a thing of the past, and chunky, blockier heels are in.  In my opinion, wedges are extremely comfortable.   If you have trouble walking in high heels, wedges give you the lift as well as the extra support you may need.  Don’t be turned off by their clunky heel; feel confident that you can pull off this statement shoe.  Besides, once they are on your feet, they won’t look nearly as bulky as you think they will.  When you’re searching for that perfect wedge, choose earthy neutrals.  They will complement this season’s very popular wide-leg pants and romantic dresses.

  1. Those espadrille wedges are going to be big this year especially this coming warm season. They are going to be everywhere, and they will come in a variety of prints, fabrics, and hues this spring. Those kitten hills are also adorable to wear, I like the second one from Sole Society.
